Keep It Simple: an evening of song & story sharing

The Fox Den, South Pasadena, CA 91030

Keep It Simple will be an intimate evening of acoustic music, story sharing, and conversation around themes of grief, joy, faith, doubt, love, hope, spirituality, and all that's in between, featuring Jessica Gerhardt and Brother James.

Jessica Gerhardt - Jessica Gerhardt, a singer-songwriter-ukuleleist from Santa Monica, CA, explores discernment, vulnerability, and the challenge of loving well in her music. Her gentle yet resonant voice evokes Fiona Apple and Sara Bareilles, and infuses her earnest, lyric-driven songs with a soothing and passionate spirit. Jessica creates a space of communion - solidarity in others' experiences of truth, goodness, beauty, contentment, impatience, and that universal longing for connection - for home. Jessica Gerhardt's single "Keep It Simple" releases on March 10, the 1-year anniversary of her grandmother's passing, and what would have been her 80th birthday.

Brother James - Brother James is the spiritual singer-songwriter moniker of LA-based producer & songwriter Justin James Sinclair, who’s equally influenced by classic songwriters like McCartney and Randy Newman as he is by authors like Plato and Leo Tolstoy. Deeply inspired by monasticism, Brother James’ songs explore mysticism, deep self-searching, and the daily, necessary struggle we all face to remain present, fully alive, and grateful. His stories document and guide us along the messy human process of pursuing truth and attempting to love people well.
